A new blogger and some history ...
By Tim Dexter-Oracle on Mar 03, 2009
Ever wondered, in an idle moment, how Publisher got started? Maybe not, but if you head on over to Ashish's shiny new Oracle blog you'll find out. Ashish recently moved back to India and then to a new (or old) team in Oracle Financials. Those of you that have met me have probably heard, several times, where my back ground lies. Ashish's is very similar, I might have a few years on him, inside Oracle and out and he definitely has more hair than I do but we go back a long way, to a small project called 'Financials Reporting Strategy.'
We both worked on a prototype with the Oracle Reports team to provide some means for the 'average' user to customize a report layout. I still have it on a drive and go back and fire it up occasionally and reminisce about the old days. Soon after that we were helping to build Publisher, the rest they say is history.
Get on over to Ashish's blog read it then bookmark it. Ashish is on the other side of the fence now, he's a customer, albeit an internal one, but will be sure to have golden nuggets of info to share and maybe even a glimpse of Fusion or three.
